Fantastic pool and views

  • 4 of 5

The property is spacious and perfect for a family or group of friends and we enjoyed our stay.

Plus points... Cosy lounge, lovely kitchen, spacious bathroom. Fantastic pool (accessed via front door and down a flight of steps) with lovely area around and outdoor shower, plus barbeque area, dining area, lounge area and bar with fridge and a sound system that you can plug your phone into.

Minus points... Not many! It is very close to the motorway but that is not too busy - you do get some noise but it is not too bad (there is no pinpoint on the map in the details but it is probably about 200 metres (from Google)). The track to the villa from the road is very rough and we had to get all passengers out of the car to get through the gateway as the car 'bottomed'. Furniture in bedrooms and the outside lounge area is tired, probably after a busy summer. No smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector fitted - this could be remedied cheaply and should be done immediately for everyone's peace of mind.

Best Villa Holiday Ever

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, secluded Villa for the two of us to relax and unwind and we hit a Gold Mine on finding Roberts villa. Although attached to the main house, the privacy was 100%, very large for the two of us but would accommodate a family or up to 6 comfortably. The pool is stunning, the outside seating area and Bar really comfortable and great fun. We spent many evenings using the charcoal BBQ (big enough to cook on for 10!!) and local supermarkets stock a phenomenal range of meat & fish suited for the purpose.

The villa located very close, 10/15 minutes drive, to some of the most beautiful beaches and we would spend the mornings on a different one every day then return to the villa to enjoy the gorgeous pool, BBQ and outside facilities.

The selection of restaurants in the locality are excellent, if you need them, and the villa is sited perfectly for exploring this part of Portugal.

We wouldn't hesitate in returning and hope to do so at the earliest opportunity!

Important Note: Car essential. Don't pack a hairdryer AND don't pack too many clothes as Washing Machine, Ironing Board etc are all part of the great range of faculties within the villa.

Tranquil cottage with beautiful view in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful rustic style cottage attached to owners home. Secure rural location. Car required. Private pool area is outstanding, BBQ eating area close to pool. Ideal getaway to relax. Owners are extremely helpful, friendly and on hand if needed but privacy assured. Highly recommended property to escape a busy life and recharge batteries !.

Wonderfull holiday let

  • 5 of 5

We booked through the agent after reading on line reviews about this wonderful Portuguese farm cottage residence. We arrived on the Friday evening at Faro Airport and transferred to the holiday let in 40 minutes. On arrival, we were very impressed by the extensive pool area and fantastic views over the local countryside. The cottage was extremely clean, well laid out with plenty of space and good amenities. The owner of the cottage lives in a separate adjacent property and apart from their hospitable welcome, we were left to relax and enjoy our holiday. The beach at Carvoiero is only a 10 minute drive away plus there plenty of local shops, restaurants and a few bars (there's even a curry house - which is worth trying !). The weather was hot / sunny for the entire week, we have made a reservation to head back next year in July. Overall, a very enjoyable stay ( we particularly enjoyed the pool area). Regards J. Ansell

Lovely farmhouse cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked this last minute. We weren't sure of the area, but decided to give it a try. The cottage was gorgeous. It was spacious, clean, well equipped and perfect for the 6 of us. The owners were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble and they were great in recommending places to see, shops and restaurants, if we asked. However, the jewel in the crown, had to be the pool and barbecue area. The views were stunning! We spent many happy days looking at the view, swimming sunbathing and having a drink in the bar area, while barbecuing. I would highly recommend this property. One point to note is that you do need a hire car.

Special interest holidays:

It is possible to arrange Skydiving where you land on the beach and go for a beer (depending on availability) and Helicopter Lessons or rides. Also bike hire and horse rides are all available upon request. The water parks are all around with ZooMarine and Crazy World within about 15 mins drive and even Buggy safaries into the mountains, which we can arrange for you. Bird watching is great here, you can see Bee catchers, Buzardss, Eagles, House martins, Hawkes, Kestrals, Owls, Storks, Swallows and many more.... and there may even be a rare chance to see the Ospreys if you are very lucky, we have had people stay here and go out to nature reserves only to find that they could find more here! So bring your binoculars if you like things with wings!


Carvoeiro beach is a 10 minute drive. You may well have already seen the very pretty town beach at Carvoeiro which is often featured in holiday brochures. The Algarve is famous for its beaches and coastline and it is still possible to find a quiet stretch of beach just a short drive from your accommodation.


Faro airport is 40 minutes drive from here and a car is essential, there is not much within walking distance!


Lagoa is the nearest town, just a few minutes drive. Then you have Silves which is less than 10 minutes drive and Carvoeiro (beach) which is also about 10 minutes. A car is essential here!

Further Details:

Lagoa has many banks with ATMs, bars, restaurants, shops and there are 6 supermarkets there too. All you need is close by. There is a full gymnasium in Lagoa just a coupe of minutes down the road, they charge about 10 euros per day or there is a reduced rate short term membership! If you want further details I will be pleased to find out for you.
